Abstract: Agricultural lands have experienced rapid changes during the last decade. In the absence of preventative crop change policies, these changes can affect multiple ecosystem services simultaneously. The objective of this paper is to describe a web-based spatial decision support system (SDSS), which we call the SmartScape™, that helps policymakers to evaluate the consequence of crop changes on various ecosystem services in agriculture landscapes. This paper specifically provides an overview of a newly developed SDSS architecture that: (1) integrates multiple open-source software tools to build a user-friendly web client; (2) integrates a variety of spatial and temporal data and environmental models, into an interactive environment to allow stakeholders with various interests to build crop change scenarios; and (3) allows stakeholders to evaluate and identify suitable crop change policies by visualizing the tradeoffs among multiple ecosystem services in a timely manner. We demonstrate the utility of this architecture through (4) an analysis of a crop change scenario for an agriculture-dominated landscape in Dane County, Wisconsin, USA. Assessment of participant feedback from potential users (group of stakeholders from Dane County as well as group of scientists who were experts in various disciplines, such as computer science, landscape ecology, agriculture, water quality, soil chemistry and climate change) reveals that this SmartScape™ is an effective tool to show the general consequences of various types of crop changes for developing effective crop changes policy in Wisconsin, USA.

Abstract: In many large ecosystems, conservation projects are selected by a diverse set of actors operating independently at spatial scales ranging from local to international. Although small-scale decision making can leverage local expert knowledge, it also may be an inefficient means of achieving large-scale objectives if piecemeal efforts are poorly coordinated. Here, we assess the value of coordinating efforts in both space and time to maximize the restoration of aquatic ecosystem connectivity. Habitat fragmentation is a leading driver of declining biodiversity and ecosystem services in rivers worldwide, and we simultaneously evaluate optimal barrier removal strategies for 661 tributary rivers of the Laurentian Great Lakes, which are fragmented by at least 6,692 dams and 232,068 road crossings. We find that coordinating barrier removals across the entire basin is nine times more efficient at reconnecting fish to headwater breeding grounds than optimizing independently for each watershed. Similarly, a one-time pulse of restoration investment is up to 10 times more efficient than annual allocations totaling the same amount. Despite widespread emphasis on dams as key barriers in river networks, improving road culvert passability is also essential for efficiently restoring connectivity to the Great Lakes. Our results highlight the dramatic economic and ecological advantages of coordinating efforts in both space and time during restoration of large ecosystems.

Abstract: In the current design of U.S. electricity spot markets, the generation dispatch mechanism and the payment rule are incompatible with each other. The uniform-price auction format predicated on two-sided market design with marginal pricing is flawed, since the supply and the demand are not treated equitably and discrete decisions, such as unit commitment, are inevitable. The pay-as-bid scheme is better suited for the market reality.

Abstract: Summary form only given. Currently, there is a national push for a smarter electric grid, one that is more controllable and flexible. The full control of transmission assets are not currently built into electric network optimization models. Optimal transmission switching is a straightforward way to leverage grid controllability: to make better use of the existing system and meet growing demand with existing infrastructure. Previous papers have shown that optimizing the network topology improves the dispatch of electrical networks. Such optimal topology dispatch can be categorized as a smart grid application where there is a co-optimization of both generators and transmission topology. In this paper we present a co-optimization formulation of the generation unit commitment and transmission switching problem while ensuring N-1 reliability. We show that the optimal topology of the network can vary from hour to hour. We also show that optimizing the topology can change the optimal unit commitment schedule. This problem is large and computationally complex even for medium sized systems. We present decomposition and computational approaches to solving this problem.

Abstract: We propose a risk-neutral second best toll pricing (SBTP) scheme to account for the possible nonuniqueness of user equilibrium solutions. The scheme is designed to optimize for the expected objective value as the UE solution varies within the solution set. We show that such a risk-neutral scheme can be formulated as a stochastic program, which complements the traditional risk-prone SBTP approach and the risk-averse SBTP approach we developed recently. The proposed model can be solved by a simulation-based optimization algorithm that contains three major steps: characterization of the UE solution set, random sampling over the solution set, and a two-phase simulation optimization step. Numerical results illustrate that the proposed risk-neutral design scheme is less aggressive than the risk-prone scheme and less conservative than the risk-averse scheme, and may thus be more preferable from a toll designer's point of view. textcopyright 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Abstract: Summary form only given. In this paper, we formulate the problem of finding an optimal generation dispatch and transmission topology to meet a specific inflexible load as a mixed integer program. Our model is a mixed-integer linear program because it employs binary variables to represent the state of the equipment and linear relationships to describe the physical system. We find that on the standard 118-bus IEEE test case a savings of 25 percent in system dispatch cost can be achieved.

Abstract: DIRECT (Dividing RECTangles) is a deterministic global optimization algorithm for bound-constrained problems. The algorithm, based on a space-partitioning scheme, performs both global exploration and local exploitation. In this paper, we modify the deterministic DIRECT algorithm to handle noisy function optimization. We adopt a simple approach that replicates multiple function evaluations per point and takes an average to reduce functional uncertainty. Particular features of the DIRECT method are modified using acquired Bayesian sample information to determine appropriate numbers of replications. The noisy version of the DIRECT algorithm is suited for simulation-based optimization problems. The algorithm is a sampling approach, that only uses objective function evaluations. We have applied the new algorithm in a number of noisy global optimizations, including an ambulance base simulation optimization problem.

Abstract: In many real-world optimization problems, the objective function may come from a simulation evaluation so that it is (a) subject to various levels of noise, (b) not differentiable, and (c) computationally hard to evaluate. In this paper, we modify Powell's UOBYQA algorithm to handle those real-world simulation problems. Our modifications apply Bayesian techniques to guide appropriate sampling strategies to estimate the objective function. We aim to make the underlying UOBYQA algorithm proceed efficiently while simultaneously controlling the amount of computational effort

Abstract: We describe the solution of a bound constrained convex quadratic problem with limited memory resources. The problem arises from physical simulations occurring within video games. The motivating problem is outlined, along with a simple interior point approach for its solution. Various linear algebra issues arising in the implementation are explored, including preconditioning, ordering and a number of ways of solving an equivalent augmented system. Alternative approaches are briefly surveyed, and some recommendations for solving these types of problems are given.

Abstract: We have designed a toolbox that provides an environment for testing radiotherapy optimization techniques, objective functions, and constraints. A set of three-dimensional (3D) pencil beam dose distributions have been computed for a cylindrical phantom. The 6 MV pencil beams were computed using a superposition-based dose engine commissioned for an Elekta SL20 linear accelerator. Due to the cylindrical symmetry of the phantom, the pencil beam dose distributions for any arbitrary beam angle can be determined by simply rotating the pencil beam data sets. Thus, the full accuracy is maintained without the need for additional dose calculations or large data storage requirements. In addition to the pencil beam data sets, tools are included for (1) rotating the pencil beams, (2) calculating the beam's eye view, (3) drawing structures, (4) writing the pencil beam dose data out to the optimizer, and (5) visualizing the optimized results. The pencil beam data sets and the corresponding tools are available for download at http://medschool.umaryland.edu/departments/radiationoncology/pencilbeam/. With this toolbox, researchers will have the ability to rapidly test new optimization techniques and formulations for intensity modulated radiation therapy and 3D conformal radiotherapy.

Abstract: Purpose: To evaluate an automated treatment planning system for gamma knife radiosurgery. This planning system was developed in our clinic and is now in routine clinical use. The system simultaneously optimizes the shot sizes, locations, and weights. It also guides the user in selecting the total number of radiation shots. Methods and Materials: We assessed the clinical significance of the automated system by comparing an optimized plan with a manual plan for 10 consecutive patients treated at our gamma knife facility. Each treatment plan was analyzed using dose-volume histograms in conjunction with the conformity index, the minimum target dose, and the integral normal tissue dose. Results: On average, the treatment plan produced by the inverse planning tool provided an improved conformity index, a higher minimum target dose, and a reduced volume of the 30% isodose line as compared to the corresponding plan developed by an experienced physician. An optimized treatment plan can typically be produced in 10 min or less. Conclusions: The automated planning system consistently provides a high-quality treatment plan while reducing the time required for gamma knife treatment planning. ?? 2003 Elsevier Inc.

Shepard DM, Ferris MC, Ove R and Ma L (2000), "Inverse Treatment Planning for Gamma Knife Radiosurgery", Medical Physics. Vol. 27, pp. 2748-2756.
Abstract: An inverse treatment planning system for Gamma Knife radiosurgery has been developed using nonlinear programming techniques. The system optimizes the shot sizes, locations, and weights for Gamma Knife treatments. In the patient's prescription, the user can specify both the maximum number of shots of radiation and a minimum isodose line that must surround the entire treatment volume. After satisfying all of the constraints included in the prescription, the system maximizes the conformity of the dose distribution. This automated approach to treatment planning has been applied retrospectively to a series of patient cases, and each optimized plan has been compared to the corresponding manual plan produced by an experienced user. The results demonstrate that this tool can often improve the tumor dose homogeneity while using fewer shots than were included in the original plan. Therefore, inverse treatment planning should improve both the quality and the efficiency of Gamma Knife treatments.

Ferris MC and Horn JD (1998), "Partitioning Mathematical Programs for Parallel Solution", Mathematical Programming. Vol. 80, pp. 35-62.
Abstract: This paper describes heuristics for partitioning a general M x N matrix into doubly-bordered, block-diagonal form. Such heuristics are useful for decomposing large, constrained, optimization problems into forms that are amenable to parallel processing. The heuristics presented are all O((M+N)^2 log(M+N)) and are easily implemented. The application of such techniques for solving large linear programs is described. Extensive computational results on the effectiveness of our partitioning procedures and their usefulness for parallel optimization are presented.

Dirkse SP and Ferris MC (1995), "MCPLIB: A Collection of Nonlinear Mixed Complementarity Problems", Optimization Methods and Software. Vol. 5, pp. 319-345.
Abstract: The origins and some motivational details of a collection of nonlinear mixed complementarity problems are given. This collection serves two purposes. Firstly, it gives a uniform basis for testing currently available and new algorithms for mixed complementarity problems. Function and Jacobian evaluations for the resulting problems are provided via a GAMS interface, making thorough testing of algorithms on practical complementarity problems possible. Secondly, it gives examples of how to formulate many popular problem formats as mixed complementarity problems and how to describe the resulting problems in GAMS format. We demonstrate the ease and power of formulating practical models in the MCP format. Given these examples, it is hoped that this collection will grow to include many problems that test complementarity algorithms more fully. The collection is available by anonymous ftp. Computational results using the PATH solver covering all of these problems are described.

Abstract: The notion of a strictly complementary solution for complementarity problems is extended to that of a nondegenerate solution of variational inequalities. Several equivalent formulations of nondegeneracy are given. In the affine case, an existence theorem for a nondegenerate solution is given in terms of several related concepts which are shown to be equivalent in this context. These include a weak sharp minimum, the minimum principle sufficiency, and error bounds. The gap function associated with the variational inequality plays a central role in this existence theorem.

Dirkse SP and Ferris MC (1995), "The PATH Solver: A Non-Monotone Stabilization Scheme for Mixed Complementarity Problems", Optimization Methods and Software. Vol. 5, pp. 123-156.
Abstract: The PATH solver is an implementation of a stabilized Newton method for the solution of the Mixed Complementarity Problem. The stabilization scheme employs a path-generation procedure which is used to construct a piecewise-linear path from the current point to the Newton point; a step length acceptance criterion and a non-monotone pathsearch are then used to choose the next iterate. The algorithm is shown to be globally convergent under assumptions which generalize those required to obtain similar results in the smooth case. Several implementation issues are discussed, and extensive computational results obtained from problems commonly found in the literature are given.
